Religious Discrimination

Employment discrimination based on religion is prohibited in two ways under federal, New York State and New York City law.

First, employers cannot discriminate against an employee because of their religion by refusing to hire them, firing them, or otherwise treating members of a particular religion less favorably.  Second, as with disabled employees, employers must grant "reasonable accommodations" to accommodate an employee's religious beliefs where doing so would not significantly burden the employer.

These protections also prohibit religious harassment or the creation of a religiously hostile workplace.


If  you believe your employer discriminated against you because of your religion you may schedule a free consultation here or by calling (646) 560-3208.
